Suggestions on how to pick up studying

Postby esther0123 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 4:25 pm

Hi everyone,

I've studied over the summer May-September, thinking I would write the October writing, but decided not to because I did not feel ready. I hope to score in the 170s, at least low 170s, ideally mid... extremely ideally high 170s.

My very first cold diagnostics (at which point I haven't even seen a single LSAT question before) was in the 140s (I don't even remember the exact number since it was that terrible) and the last 5 practice tests I wrote had an average of 165. In the last few weeks of my studying, my score was either stagnant or declining... In my first round of studying, I definitely did not drill as much as others have suggested and rather relied on taking a series of PTs+reviewing them.

I peaked twice in low 170s, a hand full of high 160s, and mainly 163~166.

I fluctuated wildly in the logic game and reading comprehension, pretty consistent in logical reasoning (-2 ish in each section)

I have read the LGB, LRB, RCB already.

I realize that Manhattan is suggested for those aiming for the high score, but I was thinking of not starting to study until May and hope for the June writing.... This is because my school work is a little on the high side right now, thanks to a thesis, and I didn't want to jeopardize my grades in my final year.

Given that I will have roughly 1 month (or 5... if I choose to write October 2013, which I really don't!), what would be the best strategy to increase my score into the steady mid 170 range for PTs?

Thanks in advance!

Doing one month is stupid. Study more. Manhattan is credited as FUARK.
